From Dawn To Tusk
A walrus, in my English garden? It’s more likely than you’d think, though it’s even more likely the “walrus” is, in fact, a wooden lawn decoration. We’d call it a gnome but let’s just leave Alaska out of this, mmkay? We don’t want to give the Discovery Channel any more ideas. (image via Garry Knight)
Neigh Means Neigh!
Leon’s getting larger but My Little Pony sure ain’t, not with those signs posted – not coincidentally, where the hangry horsies can’t read ’em! Hold on, can horses read? If they did, that would be your worst night mare. (image via Elliott Brown)
We’re guessing this is how the old “don’t bite the hand that feeds you” thing got started. Oh those nutty Canadians and their passive-aggressive signage! Do the horses say “sorry” after they’ve bitten you? We’re guessing no: it’s impolite to talk with finger food in your mouth. (image via Jo)
“What a lovely sign… for me to poop on!” Indeed, this cuddly li’l monkey doesn’t appear too impressed by either the graphics or the message displayed. It DOES appear to want to edit that message, however, by positioning its primate posterior precisely above the word “NOT”. One might say: monkey see, monkey do doodoo. (image via Bianca Polak)
This is a typically over-complicated warning sign from Japan and we have questions. MANY questions. But hey, who’s got time for that and besides, if punk rocker lederhosen-wearing kids want to share their oranges with a red-blooded (and red-butted) simian, well, so be it. We’ll let his long-suffering parents deal with the fallout from an apparent non-immaculate conception replete with er, heat rays and bacon? Thanks but no thanks, Ueno Zoo, your visitor outreach program is just a tad too touchy-feely for our liking – not that there’s anything wrong with that. (image via Carter McKendry)
